That is really not for me or you to figure out. He walked away from the
Casino business with billions of dollars in his pocket before that, so
who knows what motivated him. He certainly didn't like losing money
when he had profitable venutures elsewhere. He seemed to know what his
exposure was and figured he could take the billion dollar hit. I'd like
to see Hilary take a billion dollar write off.
Maybe he didn't want to abandon all his workers, or was working with NJ
officials in the hope of a turn around.
